National Beach Team
GCVA Beach National Team
This program is designed to help players that are focused on playing beach volleyball in college. The GCVA Beach National Team is a squad based program (collegiate duals style) where players compete as a team against the best beach clubs in the nation.
GCVA Beach Current Rankings:
Houston - 1st ranked team
Texas - 5th ranked team
Country - 9th ranked team
GCVA Beach National Teams will compete in the BVCA Club vs Club tournaments all over the country in the Spring and Summer. Travel is NOT mandatory but highly encouraged. Players are able to compete in both indoor club and on the GCVA Beach National Team but there will most likely be conflicts with indoor club schedules for tournaments (again, travel is NOT mandatory). There will be a "sign up sheet" for each BVCA tournament and players will indicate which tournaments they can attend and which ones they can't. Coaches will match players with partners for each BVCA tournament.
More information on BVCA can be found here: http://beachvolleyballclubs.com
Tryouts are for players 9th - 12th grade that have a strong desire to play beach volleyball competitively. 7th & 8th graders with considerable beach volleyball experience will be considered for spots at tryouts. If interested, register for tryouts here on this page. This is the intial tryout and players can tryout anytime throughout the season. If accepted on the National Team, a deposit will be required for all players that accept a spot on the GCVA Beach National Team.
The season starts in August and ends in late July with the BVCA Club Championships in California.
